Some employees may be entitled to penalty rates or additional benefits for working on public holidays, while others may receive their regular pay with alternative arrangements, such as time off in lieu.

To ensure you understand your rights and entitlements, it’s crucial to familiarise yourself with the relevant award or agreement that applies to your role.
